UPRIZE presents an incredible staged performance of award-winning jazz and hip hop star Soweto Kinch’s album. With jazz improvisation, a driving hip hop score and choreography from a pioneer of British Hip Hop culture, Jonzi D.
Inspired by The Seven Deadly Sins and Dante’s Inferno, Soweto performs the story of Mike Smith, a young, aspiring MC caught in a world of temptation where the boundaries of reality and fantasy collide.
The Legend of Mike Smith promises to be an absorbing combination of music, animation and dance with music from Kinch’s previous album being played live by Soweto and his band every night.
Age recommendation: 15+
Running time approx: 1 hour 20 minutes.
